FANS have taken to social media to accuse the NFL of “rigging” the schedule.
This comes after the much-anticipated 2023 schedule was released to much fanfare on Thursday.
But according to some fans, it is Green Bay PackersThe schedule is a little too kind to first-year starting quarterback Jordan Love.
They don’t think this is a mere coincidence as one of these fans tweeted, “The Packers get the easiest schedule for a QB in the.” NFL. Hmmm, of course they did. Manipulated.”
They then added, “I love how the Packers are getting a much easier schedule, especially for Jordan Love as QB.”
“Anyone who says the NFL isn’t rigged or rigged is ignorant and the NFL should be ashamed of their efforts to help certain franchises make more money.”
“Vikings will never get a chance at Trophy.”
Not everyone was convinced, and one fan added, “I just saw someone complain about the NFL schedule being ‘rigged.’
“Um… yeah, they plan the schedule… that’s why they call it a schedule [laughing emoji]”

On paper, Love, 24, would have every reason to be optimistic about his chances of starting his career as the Packers’ new franchise quarterback.
Green Bay meets six teams that finished last season with a winning record: the Lions, Vikings, Chiefs, Steelers, Giants and the Chargers.
Only one of the teams they face before their Week 6 bye, the Lions, had a winning tally last year.
The Packers only have to play four of the above teams away from Lambeau Field.
In theory, Love couldn’t have asked for a much smoother start to life as an NFL starter.
He will take the place of the 39-year-old’s likely future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgerswho was traded to the New York Jets last month.
Four-time NFL MVP Rodgers left the Packers after eighteen seasons Wisconsin.
